In my world....a small streams pleasures.
The calendar said August 15th but the weather said late September. Friday when I woke up Parker was already pacing near the door. I grabbed his leash and opened the door wow what a cool blast. I had planned on fishing this day so one cup of coffee and some oatmeal and I was on my way. I got to the stream at 6 and was in the water soon after. The heavy rains we had mid week had the stream runny fast and it was cold. With conditions as these I knew the fishing would be great.
The air temps in this streams little valley were in the high forties, and I was glad I had the light wool shirt to aid in warding off the chill. It did not take long for the trout to respond and they were very willing to play.
The beauty of this pool, at the head it is very noisy as it crashes over the rocks. The large boulder causes the water to form a deep pool. Then the water moves to the end of the pool where it becomes a tranquil slide.
A wild brook trout who was taken from the pool above. Is colors stating a change, and the season to come.
Each and every pool produced brook trout. The high waters moved many and gave them the nerve to strike my offerings.
I am very fortunate to have access to such wild creatures. Can there be anything more beautiful in this natural world?
In answer to the question above, I'm sure there is for this is a big world. But in my tiny section I don't think there is.
